There is really no need for and introduction to this wonderful dish. Chicken, Eggplant, fresh Mozzarella, onions, peppers, tomato basil sauce. This is a great one pot ( skillet) mouthwatering dish that is sure to please just about anyone..

Next add smoked paprika, 1 chopped basil leaf( there are Basil leaves in the San Marzano but, I like to add a little bit more). Now, add your sliced onion and peppers. Cover and reduce heat to med and cook for about 8 mins till onion and peppers have softened. Remove cover and stir. Add your “thinly” sliced eggplant and recover your skillet for about 6 to 7 mins till eggplant has also softened. Remove cover, and place your fresh slices of mozzarella on top. Place skillet in oven on broil for about 3 to 4 mins to melt mozz on top, once mozz is slightly golden browned on top and is fully melted remove skillet from oven and you are ready to serve . Add some fresh chopped parsley on top for garnish.

Note:
The great thing about this dish is you can serve this right from the skillet..

  1. This looks delicious! I don’t have a skillet though, would a normal frying pan work?
